blessings of Abraham
 
 

Paul says,

 
 
“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also as I am known”

I Corinthians 13:12

Basically, many things don’t make sense in this world because we lack the necessary revelation to understand them clearly.

One of these areas of misunderstanding is procreation.  Many have questions about whether to have sex, if and when to have children, and in some cases whether to terminate unwanted pregnancies.

From this side of eternity, these topics seem debatable, but from the other side of heaven God’s will is crystal clear.

 

God says,

 

“And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;”

Genesis 22:15-17

Most see this scripture as referring solely to Abraham. However, in a secondary sense, I believe it also refers to those who are of the faith of Abraham.  After all, if Abraham is the father of our faith, are we not his children? If this is true, then the same blessing and promise YHWH gave to the father of Isaac is given to us.

 

Abraham, a father of nations

 

For Abraham, who literally fathered nations, the stakes in procreation could not have been higher.  The whole twelve tribes of Israel lay in his loins, as well as the Arab peoples, and through Keturah and his concubines, maybe even the Kings of the East.

Who Abraham slept with mattered. Therefore who you sleep with matters.   The children from Abrahams sexual unions mattered.  Therefore the children you bare matter.  Moreover, the blessings of Abraham meant a great deal to his offspring as do your blessings matter to your children. Had any of his children died, whole nations would have never existed.  Likewise, if you terminate a pregnancy, whether out of fear or convenience, the eternal consequences go far beyond that single tragic act.

 

Children as the stars of heaven

 

What I am about to tell may both astonish and frighten you.  It is a revelation that, if you realize by the Spirit what I am saying, will cause you never to look upon the many aspects of procreation the same again.

Here is a truth,

 

“Like Abraham, you are literally the father or mother of children as numerous as the stars of heaven throughout eternity.”

 

As a believer in Christ you will not see death.  Both here on earth, and in the New Heavens and New Earth, you will bear children…forever. This present universe is infinite, therefore so is the world to come.  In the New Creation mankind will spread among the stars of heaven, providing an infinite number of worshippers for a limitless God.

 

The blessings of Abraham are a great responsibility

 

In conclusion, one careless act of irresponsibility on earth can wipe out whole generations in eternity.  Failure to allow God to fully join you with a Divine Mate can alter this world and the next in ways we can’t yet imagine. With the blessings of Abraham comes great responsibily.  I pray we all fully realize the magnitude of our procreative power and handle it with the utmost care and respect.  Be led of the Holy Spirit in this area and the blessings of Abraham will be yours too.
